MLP is how an application should wrap an HL7 is a Standards Developing Organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to author consensus-based standards representing a board view from healthcare system stakeholders. HL7 has compiled a collection of message form... More message to ensure HL7 compliant applications know where a message starts, where a message stops, and where the next message starts.

TCP/IP connections are established between clients and servers via sockets. TCP/IP is stream-oriented ... More. This wrapping is recommended because TCP/IP is a “stream-oriented” protocol and HL7 messages are atomic. The header is a vertical tab character <VT> its hex value is 0×0b. The trailer is a file separator character <FS> (hex 0×1c) immediately followed by a carriage return <CR> (hex 0×0d)
|<VT> (hex 0×0b)||HL7 Message||<FS> (hex 0×1c)||<CR> (hex 0×0d)|
